On page fifty of C.J.Golden`s book, "The Tao of the Defiant Woman---A Guide to life over 40", I discovered a quote that still sticks with me, "One cannot change the world, but you can change the way you react to it." I love those words, and they echo throughout this enlightening gem of wisdom, for women facing the inevitable process of getting older.
In a kind and loving manner, C.J. Golden guides you through the many phases of growth and change the maturing woman faces. She uses examples to show this time in life is shared by many women from all walks of life. She helps you to understand, as a Tao defiant woman, how you too can come to terms with life changes faced as you journey the path of life. You’ll learn to accept these changes and look at yourself, the new you-- Taogirl.
Besides "bodily", C.J. Golden points out other changes in areas of relationship, such as children, spouse, elderly parents and treasured friends. She shares with the reader how the gift of having good role models, plays a major part in enriching a Taogirls life. She invites all maturing women to step up to the mirror, love and accept what you see, and eagerly embrace all five principles of "The Tao of the Defiant Woman--A Guide to Life over 40."
I highly recommend this book to any woman who is struggling with the issues that surround women and aging. It is a great esteem booster and will help a woman see herself in a new and loving way. When you learn to love and accept yourself, and all changes your experiencing, you’ll indeed, become a Taogirl. Welcome the changes your new life has to offer, I am.
